Full Cover block for AMD® Radeon® R9 285 in the works
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is working on a new Full Cover water block for the latest AMD® Radeon® R9 285 reference design Tonga GPU powered graphics card.
The upcoming EK-FC R9-285 will be a high performance full-cover water block for engineered specifically for AMD reference design Radeon R9 285 graphics cards and will be available in two variants – Nickel Plexi and Nickel Acetal. Just like the Full-Cover water block for the flagship Radeon R9 290(X) variant, this cooler will directly cool the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water will flow directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it’s VRM to remain stable under high overclocks.
Up to four water blocks could be interconnected with EK-FC Terminal which allows for hassle-free piping job. Product will also feature a very high flow design allowing the product to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps. An aesthetic backplate, which will also provide passive cooling for the VRM (Voltage Regulation Module) on the backside of the circuit board, will be available for separate purchase.
In order to simplify the search for suitable and compatible water block EK is adding newly released AMD® Tonga powered graphics cards from various manufacturers to EK Cooling Configurator database and compatible graphics cards are being added to the list on daily basis:
EK-FC R9-285 series water block is slated for release in mid October 2014.
